I suspect that the Western Ruling Classes will reluctantly turn back to some insipid form of Deism or (for better political control) spiritualized racism: there is no possibility that they will repent before Christ even in part, as the Eastern Europeans have.
Repentance means public humility before God, saying “Thou art right, and we – both myself, and the people who elected me – were wrong.”
Evil men and evil cultures will not repent before God. They will willingly choose death instead.
Christians must prepare to build a new, and far better, civilization on the shattered bones and rotting flesh of this culture.
We live today in a dying age. Modernity, with its trust in the autonomous reason of man, is coming to a dramatic and cataclysmic conclusion. Unfortunately, many Christians have adopted the secular worldview and cannot see this impending doom. Much of this is due to a secular education. When people begin to see the State as their Savior and sustainer, Christ takes second fiddle in these roles. This is idolatry. Christ is Lord of Lords and King of Kings. He has ultimate supremacy and will put all those who rebel against Him and His Law-Word under his feet in victory (Ps. 110:1, I Cor. 15).
God judges the Church first: but that judgement, the humiliation and disgrace and profound powerlessness and irrelevance of these churches that hate His Commandments and His Authority (and so willfully opened the gate to the wolves), is nearing its fullness.
Which means that He will soon turn to deal with His lesser enemies, the State and the Intelligentsia… and the financial centres of power who commands both.
‘Hard times’ a coming.’
But victory under God awaits those who stand with Him – and not just a personal victory with Him, but a victory that extends to the thousands of generations of righteous men, stretching into the unimaginable future.
Forever God shall rule; and forever will those who love Him, who obey Jesus Christ and call Him LORD – shall rule with God.
And the LORD’S anger was kindled the same time, and he sware, saying, Surely none of the men that came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob; because they have not wholly followed me: Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite, and Joshua the son of Nun: for they have wholly followed the LORD. And the LORD’S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed. And, behold, ye are risen up in your fathers’ stead, an increase of sinful men, to augment yet the fierce anger of the LORD toward Israel. For if ye turn away from after him, he will yet again leave them in the wilderness; and ye shall destroy all this people. — Numbers 32:10-15
Millions and millions of Christians think that they serve a sweet old thing, who will never, ever punish His faithless and rebellious and contemptuous people, no matter how disobedient they are.
The bones of these rebellious Christians litter the land — in the anti-Christian desert they hate, but would never make a single sacrifice to fight — and their pagan children don’t even bother with these dead churches.
Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. — Matthew 5:13
A Church – and indeed, any believer – that licks the filth off the boots of the enemies of God fits this verse, perfectly.
But, even as the solid majority of Western Churches draw close to their graves in the desert, God is building up a minority of faithful, repentant men, men with a future of increasing obedience to God, and thus increasing victory in this life, as well as the next.
Did you really think that God would take a back seat to Satan? Really?
Did you think that obedience to Satan brought power and glory, but obedience to God brings defeat and failure? Really?
Do you even read your Bible? Or only selected, politically useful portions of it, like any Establishment cleric?
Perhaps you don’t realize that Jesus rules right now at the Right Hand of God.
Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him. — I Peter 3:22
But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? — Hebrew 1:13
The enemies of Jesus Christ are being broken right before His face — by the Father Himself! — and are made into the footstool of Jesus Christ RIGHT NOW, as we speak…
…and not merely in some far-distant, la-la land, pie in the sky future.
- Ever wondered what happened to the Nazis?
- Ever wondered what happened to the Commies?
- Ever wondered what will happen to the Darwinians?
- Ever wondered what will happen to the Jihad?
I think that we all know what has, and what is going to happen to them… and we certainly won’t have to wait for the Rapture for the power and authority of Christ to manifest!
“Only read the parts of the Bible that please powerful men, and ignore the parts that displease the Right Sort… because we know who our real Master is!”
But God sees… and God judges.
Right here and right now, as well as in the hereafter.
Fear Him, Repent before Him, and Obey Him.
Before the door closes, and you are before the Judgement Seat.
And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. — Genesis 8:20-22
It is Jesus who took the horrific punishment for sin, that is the fitting result for every wicked thing a believer did… and every evil thought a believer failed to reject.
Christ is the satisfactory, atoning offering, the Lamb that was slain on our behalf.
And what happens to those men who refuse to accept Jesus as Lord, Saviour, King, and God Manifest in the Flesh?
Here’s the thing: God rules Creation, and He is absolutely just and absolutely holy.
He will not tolerate a speck of filth, a hint of sin, a murmur of corruption. Not even the thought of it is tolerable.
And if the sacrifice of Christ does not provide the sweet savour He demands, then He will get His justice directly from the sinner himself.
In the case of the unrepentant sinner, the fury of the flames won’t be roasting an innocent Lamb.
But, one way or the other, justice will be done, and God will set that sweet, sweet savour of absolute justice and righteousness, rising from the eternal fire…
As the various nation-states break apart, various suppressed nationalities, migrating tribes and loathed lower-class collectives shatter their chains, and the Ruling Classes discover that they aren’t ruling much beyond their heavily guarded city enclaves.
Most Christians will still be cringing in their ghettos, of course, wailing something about the Rapture even as the power of Pharaoh is shattered irrevocably by the fist of God.
“More material for Jesus’ footstool!” is the proper response to all of His enemies.
The fact that much of this shattering will be driven by new, uncensored scientific discovery and science-driven advances in communication is as close to hearing God laugh out loud as we will likely hear in this world…
…well, unless you were around to hear the collapse of the Communist World, by a bloodless revolution, because all those promises of the Superiority of Central Planning were shown to be as much a bag of lies as the rest of Marxism.
…but that was not nearly as terrifying as what happened to the Nazis, when their pretensions of racial superiority has an up-close and personal meeting with Russian fury.
For some reason, people think that God is a nice, sweet old grandfatherly man who wouldn’t hurt a fly.
(No matter how much filth that fly dives into, how many diseases that fly spreads, or how many people that fly indirectly infects, corrupts, poisons, kills.)
The screaming of billions in hell — including unsaved children, who never even learned why they were justly rejected by God — proves otherwise.
But our own perfectly lawful, and utterly casual crushing of a fly, or even our everyday slaughtering, dismemberment, and frying of billions and billions of chickens, which exist only to be devoured in our bellies — which is our perfect, God-given right to do to them, by the way — whispers otherwise.
As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion. So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. — Romans 9:13-16
We pose and prat about, insisting on our moral superiority to God as we tear apart our children in our wombs – or knowingly welcome and support those who do.
But I ask, “Why should God permit His enemies to forever spread evil and corruption and filth, without limit?”
Which immediately points to the agony and futility hell… and afterwards, the far more horrific Lake of Fire.
And I ask, “Why should God permit even a single sin to exist? Why should He permit these despicable, worthless to dare think a single thought against HIS Glory and HIS Majesty?”
When you are overwhelmed with inescapable pain, you are incapable of even a single thought against God. Ergo, no sin… not even the sin of a single evil thought.
And so, God gets His sinless, perfect, noble Creation, and His blessed people are free to enjoy God’s rule without fear, and even to rule with Him, under His authority, led by Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit, forever.
And the enemies of God will be left to scream, powerless, irrelevant, impotent, forever.
God’s fury is unlimited, and His wrath is exceedingly patient.
He can afford to be so: our lives stretch no more than a few decades, or – in the most advanced of sin-infected civilizations, centuries.
Eternity stretches far, far, far longer than that.
Fear the Lord.
Show Love, and work hard to spread the Gospel, and uphold the Kingship and Authority of Christ – as His salvation and redemption is as desperately needed by sinful nations and sinful governments as much as by sinful men.
And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.
But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. — Luke 12:4-5
